Now is the times to take cuttings from your favorite coleus. We have some unusual varieties from the Under the Sea Collection growing in the Scherer Garden, including Coleus ‘Molten Coral,’ shown at right (click on the image to enlarge).
On Thursday evening from 6-7 Lesley Parness, Superintendent of Horticultural Education, will be giving cuttings away to Friends Members. If you plan to attend, please bring small plastic bags to carry your treasures home in. You can grow them out indoors this winter and transplant to next year’s garden. Meet in the Scherer Garden from 6pm-7pm.
